Campus Safety Report

Hilbert College Campus Safety Report 2010

This report is filed as required by the Federal "Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act." (Hereafter referred to as the Campus Safety Act) which was last amended in 2009. The purpose of this report is to provide our faculty, staff, and students with campus safety information including crime statistics and procedures to follow to report crime. The Campus Safety Department and the Vice President for Business/Finance prepared the report. Any questions regarding this report should be directed to the Campus Safety Office in the Maintenance Building or 649-7900 ext. 224.

General Security Information

In 2009-2010, 967 students enrolled at Hilbert College. There are 23 undergraduates who reside in St. Joseph’s Hall, 149 undergraduates in Trinity Hall, 67 undergraduates in the Hilbert Apartments, and no undergraduates in the off-campus Housing, a total of 239 Resident Students. The College employs 44 full-time faculty and 85part-time faculty. The College also employs 126 staff members.

Students, faculty, and employees have access to academic, recreational, and administrative facilities on campus during regular hours of operation. Access to the residence halls, however, is limited to students and their guests according to a guest procedure presented in the College Handbook. Access to the residence halls by the college employees is on an "as needed" basis and incorporates access procedures through facilities. 

The public can attend cultural and recreational events on campus with their access limited only to the facilities in which these events are held. To report any violations of this policy or to report suspicious persons, dial cellular phone 479-1233 for the Campus Safety Officer. 

Crime Reporting

All members of the campus community are urged to report criminal incidents, emergencies and suspicious activity. The campus emergency number is 479-1233 and this should be used for all fire, medical, and police emergencies. All reports are classified, logged and responded to thoroughly. 

Crimes in progress and any other emergencies on campus can be reported directly by any student, faculty member, or employee to the campus safety department by dialing campus safety 479-1233. The campus safety officer can also be reached using campus red emergency phones in the lobby, back wing, and upstairs in Bogel Hall. Red emergency phones are also located in the Lower Level of the Campus Center, the Hafner Recreations Center, and inside the Maintenance Building near the Campus Safety Office. Upon receipt of the call, Campus Safety Officers are dispatched immediately to the site of the complaint. They prepare and submit incident reports which are kept on file. 

Members of the campus community can also report criminal incidents to the following offices: 

Director of Campus Safety- ext. 224
The Dean of Students- ext. 330
Residence Life – ext. 362
Director of Athletics – ext. 233
Counseling Center – ext. 232

Please note that these allow victims and witnesses to report crime on a voluntary, confidential basis. Reports of this nature are filed with the Campus Safety Department for informational purposes, but there is no formal investigation of the incident. Counselors, at the counseling center, who are informed by persons they are counseling of the commission of a crime, may also inform that person that crimes can be reported of the office on student life on a voluntary, confidential basis for inclusion in the colleges Crime statistics only. 

For staff and students living off campus, a listing of major area emergency numbers appears in this report. In the event of a major emergency, or if there is an event which poses a threat to students, employee, or others, a "crises plan" will go into effect. 

Campus Safety Department 

Hilbert College maintains a Campus Safety Department that provides 24 hour coverage, 365 days a year. The mission of the department is to assist and protect all individuals on campus, protect college property, report and respond to infractions and provide uniform parking and traffic enforcement. Personnel are enforcing the College policies, rules and regulations set forth by the Administration and the Vice President for Business/Finance. The Campus Safety staff will also work as liaisons with the appropriate local, state, and federal authorities. The department's officers are not police officers, and do not have conventional police authority. However, they do have the authority to temporarily intervene and detain anyone on the campus who is behaving in a disorderly manner, committing a crime, or a danger to himself or herself. Each Campus Safety Officer will be registered with the State of New York as a Security Guard, as well as First Aid- CPR certified. Our officers will have continuous training to upgrade their skills. Our department has a number of full time officers and several part time officers. They conduct foot, golf cart and vehicular patrols on the campus and residence hall areas. We also provide escort service for the college community. The objective of the Campus Safety Department is to provide a safe environment for teaching, research and social endeavors and to protect the lives and property of the students, employees and visitors of the College. This objective is pursued within the framework of the College rules and regulations and all local, state and federal laws. The investigation of crimes committed on the campus fall under the jurisdiction of the Campus Safety department. The Campus Safety Department also works closely with the Town of Hamburg Police Department, which assist them with incidents that may occur off campus but involve campus staff or students. 

Crime Reporting 

Victims of a sex offense will also be informed of their option to notify either Campus Safety or Town of Hamburg Police and will be assisted by College personnel in notifying the police if desired. 

The Campus Safety Department enforces laws regulating underage drinking and the use of controlled substances and weapons. 

Policy on Alcohol and Drugs

The illegal possession and/or use of marijuana, barbiturates, amphetamines, hallucinogenic compounds, narcotics and other controlled substances are in violation of state and federal law.

Students living in the college residence hall who are 21 years of age or older shall be allowed to possess and consume alcoholic beverages in their rooms in compliance with state law and consistent with College regulations pertaining to possession and consumption. Members of the campus community in need of assistance with respect to a question or personal problem regarding alcohol or other drugs should contact the Dean of Students in Franciscan Hall at 649-7900ext 330. 

Weapons on Campus
 
Firearms and dangerous weapons of any type are not permitted on campus. Intentional use, possession, or sale of firearms or other dangerous weapons by anyone is strictly forbidden and is a violation of state and federal law, as well as, a violation of the student code of rights and responsibilities. This includes paint ball guns. 
 
Daily Log 
 
The Campus Safety Department also maintains a daily log of crimes and incidents that occur on campus that is available for the public to view. This information is recorded by the date, time and general location, and disposition of the complaint. This daily log is available at the Campus Safety Department, Maintenance Building. Please note that entries are generally made within two business days after the event occurs. Incidents or situations deemed to pose a threat to the campus community are logged as soon as possible. While most events are logged, the office of the Campus Safety Department may determine that an incident is classified as "confidential" in order not to jeopardize a criminal investigation or the identity of a victim.
